While launching Dial 100 system in the Bundelkhand region, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav today said only Samajwadi Party can bring development in this rugged region as “it is committed for the welfare of the people.”
“When people were in need the help SP government came forward and extended help to the flood and drought ravaged people of Bundelkhand. We gave Samajwadi Ration as well as included women of Bundelkhand in the Samajwadi pension scheme. This was done with an aim to extend help to the people,” he said while addressing a crowd during launch of the Dial 100 system here.
He said, “you have also seen a party which promised ‘Achche Din’ and sent an empty train to quench your thirst. How can a train reach villages? Only tankers can reach remote areas of Bundelkhand. We had asked for tankers from the Centre but they said they have sent a water train which incidentally did not have water.
“The same party has now started joke on the name of demonetisation. It has culled high value currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 saying this will stop flow of black money. Money cannot be black or white. It is the nature of transaction which generates illegal money. If you pay taxes the same black money becomes white,” he said, adding that farmers are standing in long queue outside banks and is votes are not used judiciously you would be forced to stand in many more lines.
Mr Yadav said in true sense Samajwadis have brought ache din for Bundelkhand.
“It is our government which has constructed medical college in Banda. Besides we have also given a 500-beded hospital to this area. The previous government constructed Agriculture University but did not give water. We ensured this university gets water. We also ensured solar plants in each districts so that majority of the area could get quality electricity”, he said.
“And now we have launched Dial 100 system under which police will reach the crime spot in less than 15 minutes. The 102 and 108 ambulances have already made live easy for the people and this 108 system will bring government closer to people,” he said.
He flagged off police Dail 100 jeeps for three districts of Jalaun, Mahoba and Hamirpur.
